I was delighted that The Tennessean saw my blog post and did a little investigation themselves. Apparently, the store in Spring Hill is not following corporate policy when they display pornographic images in full sight of children. (Think I’m overreacting? This is just one cover — warning, obviously! — that my kids almost saw.) The Tennessean went to other stores in Nashville and uncovered the fact that other stores did not have such sexual displays:
SPRING HILL, Tenn. — Author Nancy French had to do a little extra mothering on a pre-Mother’s Day shopping excursion to Books A Million in Spring Hill.
She was steering her children – ages 13, 11 and 4 – down the military history aisle when saw something that shocked her. She told them to freeze and turn around.
There, on a shelf labeled “Sexuality,” was the book 365 Sex Positions, complete with a cover photo featuring a nude couple demonstrating one.
Read the rest of Heidi Hall’s article here, and if you haven’t already called their corporate headquarters the number is 1-800-201-3550.
